Tried it, never worked.

Kevin A. Dieterich, Amazon
15 October 2002
  • Summary: I bought the D-Link router because I thought the printer port would be useful, and the price was right. I spent 1/2 day off from work, on line with my DSL ISP and D-Link and the Westell modem tech support teams. My ISP provide dynamic IP addresses.

  • Summary: The D-LINK 713P worked for about 10 days and then the connectivity dropped every day progressively till it finally stopped working. I have an Orinoco Gold Card and can no longer connect to the 713P even when sitting right next to it. I have tried connecting with a Linksys card with no luck.

Does Not Handle VPN Well

Rodney J. Recker, Amazon
30 September 2002
  • Summary: I was going to replace my reliable old Linksys non-wireless router with this D-Link one. I chose it partly because of the integrated print server. In general it worked fine for most applications. However, I also use it to access my company's network from home using VPN. This did not work well.

Amazon Customer, Amazon

Weak Support. Received Defective Product

Amazon
4 September 2002
  • Summary: Customer service was generally not helpful. For one thing, they do not seem to have a checklist or any kind of strong customer database to systematically walk you through steps to solve your problem.
